Schererville has a wide variety of places to go for dining, shopping, and entertainment. The majority of shops and entertainment are located along or near US 30 and US 41.


Schererville has many different options for dining around the town. Fast food, sit-down restaurants, bars, and cafes can all be found around town. For example: Firehouse Subs, Tomato Bar, Noodles and Company, Ciao Bella, YoAmazing, Aurelio's Pizza, Kowloon, and Jalapeños. These are all just a small sample of what you can find around town. 


A variety of different stores are available around town for those wishing to go out shopping. Some big box retailers include Strack & Van Til, Whole Foods, Wal-Mart, and Menards. The new “Shops on Main” area has several new clothing and accessory stores such as Gordmans, DSW, and Pier 1 imports. Most stores are located in strip malls and shopping centers, which provide access to a bevy of other local businesses. Of course, Schererville is located very close to many other shopping areas in nearby towns as well.


The Schererville Parks and Recreation department often has some kind of event or program going on as well. Both young children and adults will be able to find fun things to do. The summer months in particular have, often, daily events, but winter and fall offer opportunities as well. Summer camp programs, karate lessons, arts and crafts, educational programs, and sporting events are all offered.

Of course, the Parks Department isn’t the only source for fun in the area. The Skyzone Trampoline Park is available, as well as Jaks Warehouse, an indoor family fun center featuring arcade games, lazer tag and more. Schererville also has two movie theaters, Showplace 12 and Showplace 16, with 16 featuring IMAX and 3D screens.

Schererville is also located conveniently close to other fun locations. Deep River Water Park is very close and Chicago is only a 45 minute drive away. Various bike paths, trails, and parks are also all within easy driving distances as well.
